I have recently found a wonderful site – PA – and the latest posting there is about the 3 types of protests that occur in the West today:
Type 1 Protest: A ritualistic humiliation of the state’s internal enemies.
Type 2 Protest: A show of solidarity between the people and the state against an external enemy.
Type 3 Protest: A people’s challenge to the legitimacy of the state.
I offer up just one of the many juicy quotes from this post:
There is no real anger among American blacks because America is their paradise. No other group of people in history had been given so much privilege on so little merit, short of maybe old Egyptian sun-gods. Anger is a very serious and dangerous thing; frivolous demonstrations of something that resembles anger are just play-acting.
